The FBI is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a man suspected of fatally shooting a police officer on Hawaii’s Big Island.

The FBI said Wednesday Justin Waiki has three previous felony convictions for possessing a prohibited weapon, promoting dangerous drugs, and forgery.

Hawaii County police say Bronson Kaliloa was shot Tuesday night during a traffic stop. He was struck in the neck and leg and was taken to a hospital, where he died early Wednesday.

Other officers returned fire at the suspect, who fled into the brush in the town of Mountain View.

The Big Island’s entire 400-member police force is searching for Waiki.
